Everyone's significant others can breathe a sigh of relief today. We are NOT playing with fire!
I got a few new pretties in this week which inspired me to go a little retro funky. Well that and we have a super fab dress from Polka Dot Ponies that I have sorely neglected to make something to equal its poshness. We have had almost spring like weather lately so I thought I better get on that!
This tutorial is a great foundation to play with this look and cater it to your needs. You can make this flower over the top like we did or dress it down for an everyday look.
3/8 ribbon- we used a pink sheer with a satin edge
Large safety pin
Marabou or curly ostrich (optional)
Take the 3/8 ribbon and wrap it around your 4 fingers 6-7 times.
This looks pretty nice by itself right here, eh? We could just slap something on the center and call it a day. If you want a more conservative look that’s a good idea. Stop here and attach it to whatever you want. (Hair clip, headband, outfit, hat, or anything else)
Did we stop here?
Of course not! We have an over the top girlie girl to accessorize!
Adding another flower to the top is as simple as just repeat the steps above using 3 fingers to wrap your ribbon.
Glue your two flowers together. On the very top flower we added a single chiffon rose to the center, then added a dazzle dot acrylic stone for some sparkle and shine.
To finish we applied some hot glue to our felt circle and smashed a circle of our 4 inches of curly marabou into it. Add a little more hot glue to the back of your ribbon flower and press onto your marabou puff.
We attached our finished creation onto a headband because the resident diva has been all about elastic glam headbands lately. How she innately senses current adult fashion trends is a bit unnerving!
Gotta hand it to her. It looks great!
